'Tis hoped all frnali VtlTels will take the iame caje, for at Tangier they'll be fare not to lie long before Icrae of our Men of War, or private Cruiztrs, will joii:, tad convr.y them to this Place. On the 6th the Anne an erity to keep France from being obliged to take part in the War, in cafe one fhould kindle for the fupporr of the Pragmatick Sanfti on. This is the Time for putting the fprings of Aclion in Operation j and it may i>� truly fait), tsst tko k4'm*Ary c$ the principal Courts in Europe are making ufe of their great-ell Addrefs in ordsr to direcl rr;em. His Eminence the Cardinal being informed of the Negotiation which is upon the Tapis between his Britannick Majefly and the Queen cf Hurgary, for renewing the ancient good Intelligence between thi two Courts and the States General, and tor bringing into it Ruffii, Denmark, and perhaps the King of Po land, aProjefl that would ftrongly lupport the Grand Duke of Tufcany, who is entirely in the antient fyftem, and who is ftrongly inclined to the Englifli and Dutch : His Eminence, I fay, fets all his Machines to work in order to traverie fo formidable an Alliance. He therefore intimated to the Prince de Lich:enilein, before hi* departu>e, that h=r Majefly of B-'hernia might depend upon his Moll C'hriit:an Majifly's f^pporting her againft all the Enterptiza of the King of Pruffia, and on theother hand, th-it his moitChnf-tian Majefly would omit nothing in order to diffuade the Queen of Spain from executing her defigns upon Italy; giving that AmbaJlkdar at the fame time to ur.derfland, that the Court of V�hria! ought to maksa wide difference between the iuccourwtady at hand of fuch a power as France, and thofe which it was to expect from other powers at a greater diflance. The Conduft of the King of Pruffia frill fixes the. Atten tion of Politicians here. The Queen of Hungary c ies with all her might, Ha no upon that prince, and nas in very ftrong Term communicated her Grievances to all the Eiec tors, princes and States of the Empire, to the Court of France, to that of Gre*t Britain, to the States General, and to the Court of Ruffia : Whether fhe will meet with any extraordinary Affiflance from thefe pewers Time will fhew: The Diftinftions of Cafus Foederis and Cafus Gua-rantist are fo numerous, and fo fubtle, that it's not unlikely but that the real fuccours may be lefs ready than they arc expefted to be. On the other hand, the Minifleis fiom Pruffia every where loudly complain of the conduit of the court of Vienna, which they fay refufes to hearken to the mod advantageous Proportions. Others indeed fay, that his Pruffian Majefty has chofe to fifh in troubled Waters, and perhaps without imagining that Things would have gone fo far, he bids fair for kindling a War in the Empire, which however cannot be faid witn propriety, becauie Silefia is neither .a province nor a Fief of the German Empire. Many people here'are ftrongly perfuaded, that the War between Great Britain and Spain will foon have an End pu-to it, or at leaft that there will be a fufpenfion of ^11 Hofti-litiesin Europe, leaving the two powers at Liberty to pufh their point in America, whilft conditions of a Treaty cf peace that will even be agreeable to Great Britain are regulated ; to which the Queen of Spsin will now the mere readily content, as fhe is very much irritated with the Re-fufal made by the Court of France, tofgrant a p3flage to the Troops of Spain deftitfd for the Milanefe. The King of the Two Sicilies is not to intenntddie. i& the Enterprise of Spain againft Italy. T>e Troops which he holds in readi-nefs to march, are, hdems, only fome Spanifh Regiments that the King his Fatrer had left in h:_ fervice, after the conqaefl of the Kingdom oi Na. !e�.
